Foo Fighters Conjure ‘Something From Nothing’ to Wrap ‘Late Show’ Residency

Foo Fighters Something From Nothing Letterman

Foo Fighters weeklong residency on the Late Show With David Letterman finally rolled to a close Friday night. After some special performances throughout the week with Zac Brown, Heart, and Cheap Trick’s Rick Nielsen, Friday night’s performance was all Foos as they barreled through their riotous new single “Something From Nothing.” The alt-rock icons also took over Letterman’s Top Ten list segment for a list of the “Top Ten Things Foo Fighters Would Like to Say After Spending a Week at the Late Show.” You can catch the live clip above and the list below.

But just because these segments aired on Friday doesn’t mean that the band wasn’t staying as busy as ever. According to Consequence of Sound, the band’s performance was actually recorded Thursday night so that Friday night could be used for a special live set in Chicago. The band took hold of Chicago’s Cubby Bear, the venue that Dave Grohl saw his first ever concert in, and played a 22-song set after screening the debut episode of their HBO show. You can watch some choice cuts from that performance below as well, including a cover of Cheap Trick’s “Stiff Competition” with Nielsen.
